Toronto Condo Lobby Art Installation

 I recently completed a large scale Art Installation project for a condominium lobby renovation (15 Brunel Court, Toronto, ON).  I was contacted by a local interior design firm (Design Theory) and was asked if I would like to submit a proposal for the project in 2019.  Several artists were asked to submit a proposal.  All the proposals were then submitted to the condo board and to my surprise they chose me to complete the project.  Unfortunately, the project was delayed because of the pandemic and installation was not completed until June 2021.  Below are the links to my YouTube channel where you can watch me work on this large installation project.  The painting is an acrylic on canvas measuring approximately 18 x 13 feet.   The artwork was installed by Stellar Art Services, and they are in Toronto, Ontario    Part 1 - https://youtu.be/EyvpsIaiyS8 Part 2...
